More about Thompson's Woodcraft

He likes to work with all varieties of hardwood, especially bird's-eye maple, oak and birch, and is known internationally for his beautiful bowls, his flagship product. The making of these bowls, each of which is unique, is a long process. It starts with a hardwood log, which Wilfred spilts vertically then cuts into the approximate shapes. He turns the bowl a first time on the lathe while still green, then it's left to dry for approximately 6 months. Once the drying process is complete, he proceeds with the final shaping of the bowl on the lathe. The product is then finished with oils or sprays and places in his attractive showroom out front of the shop. Each buyer leaves the shop knowing that

no one else has a bowl that looks the

same.
